Reviewed 26 June 2018

Absolutely incredible experience- regional recipes beautifully cooked with organic, locally sourced ingredients, great service, relaxing terrace, natural wines... Hard to find better if you're into good food and slow life. Don't trust the bad reviews, either seriously outdated or written by people not understanding how rewarding a small wait can be! We'll be back, hopefully, many times!

Gracies per tot!

Now renamed I presume after the wonderful Chef as we remember her on our previous visit four years ago. Our previous visit was amazing. We and a tasting menu with beautiful locally sourced ingredients and organic wines.
However upon our return the restaurant inside we did not see (it was reserved) but were told they would take us for lunch as a party of two. Seemingly with reluctance. No-one appeared to be eating and the one waitress was busy serving drinks to none diners.

We seemed to wait for ever before the owner reappeared with menus. "It's this page" and was gone again. A confusing menu of food groups but no real indication of portion size or what dishes should be combined to form a meal. The owner returned to take our drinks order. A glass of wine, water, a small beer and a coffee. These took over an hour to arrive and no water. Still no-one else appeared to be dining so the kitchen can't have been that busy.

The waitress then got very upset as later arrivals started walking away. We maybe should have legged it before the drinks arrived. I went to speak to the waitress to ask for the water and tell her not to be so upset as the owner didn't appear to be helping at all. Maybe she was devoted to the three tables in the dining room I managed to glimpse?

As I returned to the table the food has arrived. The chicken was not mass produced but a local farm chicken. Excellent in flavour but slow cooked over what may have been a number of days judging by the half a roast potatoe that accompanied it. It certainly didn't take nearly three hours to make it's way from pot to plate to patio. Is was cold.

So sadly a once revered and much to be applauded restaurant is woefully badly managed.

We have spent many years in this area and are always trying out the new restaurants. Last night really surprised us, this hideaway has a small terrace under two big trees in a small medieval town. Lovely setting, very pleasant service and staff (all speak english), and the food is just an amazing experience. All ingredients are eco and local, prepared and cooked with much care by chef Lola. Good wines, cocktails list with fresh fruits, every thing just fits! We will definitely be back, happy to have found this (non-touristy) spot;)

Thank Marlene S
